Pawel Zietowski sped, pulled wheelies, took selfies and generally rode dangerously on the M6

We love riding motorcycles anywhere and everywhere. But there’s a time and a place for riding fast and doing wheelies - it’s not the open road.

Sorry but the roads are dangerous enough at the best of times, so if you want to ride like a hooligan do it on private land.

If you insist on doing it on the road, then perhaps the story of Pawel Zietowski might be a lesson as to what could happen.


Zietowski has just been sentenced to eight months in prison and been given a 28-month driving ban for speeding and using a mobile phone while driving a vehicle on the road.  

Zietowski was summoned to North Staffordshire Justice Centre, where he pleaded guilty to driving a motor vehicle dangerous.

During the hearing, the court was shown footage of Zietowski riding his Yamaha R6 on the M6 Northbound that included: pulling wheelies, taking a selfie, riding stood up with his hands off the bars and generally riding his bike in a dangerous manner.
